In my opinion, this the best version of Satisfaction that the Grateful Dead ever performed. It is crisp, well executed and the vocals between Bobby and Brent is superb. I also suggest a close listen to Spainish Jam. It is the most developed and played of the Fall of 1981.

Really Nice Show
And a great recording. So few reviews, I guess not many Heads made the Europe 81 tour. I’m enjoying all of these shows, and this one sparkles.

Nice jam pre-drums kinda picking up where the Bird Song left off in the 1st set.
Mydland driving the syncopation.
You don't get a Spanish Jam everyday!
Spanish Jam into Wheel is a peach.
(The drums are perfect in the mix to my ear)
Good transition from Wheel into Sugar Magnolia
(love the tempo change , clearly hear Garcia shifted it up a notch)
Sugarmag>Black Peter>Sunshine Daydream
Jerry is over the top on Black Peter!
The Satisfaction is way cool
Bob with Brent trailing on vocals...

nice second set
worthy for sure... excellent, high energy satisfaction encore
there are some cuts. i was really trying to learn to lay me down on my acoutic guitar and toward the ending there is a funky cut in the recording. i love the sound. everyone sounds so good. brents sound is really great. i rememberng someone saying somethng about his keyboard on lost sailor sounding like a dead pirate playing the bones of davy jones, a great effort by all involved. i am rating this 4.879 though i have not listened to the whole show. so many shows so little time

There are some nice shows during the Europe 1981 shows. I really like the second set of this show. The first set is well played, but the second set picks up in intensity. The set list has nice variety as well. The sound of this board is very good as well.
